Up early to fly back to Beijing - my first time on a 380. How a thing like that manages to get up in the air, I'll never know. Then straight to a meeting at the State Administration of Cultural Heritage.
But today's main event was the school production of Bugsy Malone, performed by Years 5 & 6.
It was great - a lot more professional than I'd dared hope. Lots of songs to sing, routines to choreograph, costumes to make, sets to paint & construct, lighting to design, music to play (a 4-piece)... And at over one & a half hours long, a lot of lines to remember.
Alyssa played Sergeant Smolsky, quite a juicy role as it turned out. Great to see her act with confidence, project her voice and enjoy herself. She had presence, she had style, she had a moustache. Proud dad!
